See The Young Woman Who Took Her Graduation Photos With A 13-Foot Alligator [PHOTOS]
A young woman about to graduate from the University Of Texas at College Station took some graduation photos she’ll definitely remember for years to come.
21-year-old Makenzie Noland graduates with a degree in wildlife and fisheries sciences this Friday but before she left, she proved just how dedicated she is to wildlife by taking a series of photos with a live, 1,000 pound alligator measuring more than 13 feet in length.

The gator, whose name is reportedly Big Tex, resides in a Texas rescue center when Noland interned. She’s worked with him for months and would often get close to him for feedings and training.
“The only thing different that day was that I was wearing a dress,” Noland told BuzzFeed news. “I call him over, talk all sweet to him, tickle his nose, and reassure him that I’m not going to hurt him. I’ve been bitten by 8-inch hatchlings, which hurt, but never by Tex.”
